Happy Birthday PixlBit!

Holy crap, PixlBit's now 7!

Well folks, believe it or not, PixlBit turns 7 years old today. Thanks to the hard work of a whole lot of people and all of you fans, we've somehow made it this far. I know some of you have been around from the beginning, others for many years at this point, and I sincerely thank all of you for making PixlBit one of my favorite spots on the internet.

It's hard to believe that when sitting down in a cabin and talking to Chessa about our future, that 7 years later we'd still be running the site we'd go on to create just a month after our first conversation. For a long time we toiled away day and night, producing content and working hard with very little viewership for our work. But I'll never forget the day that the site's numbers jumped and user accounts were created in droves and blogs were posted by the bulk load. It was an incredibly happy day where all of the hard work finally felt like it paid off.

Since that day, I've gotten to know many of the readers here and I'm happier now to have those relationships. So to cut this thing short, I just want to reiterate how thankful I am to all of you for your readership and for just being all-around great people. You make this site worth running and you're the reason it's still around. Happy 7th Birthday, PixlBit. Here's to 7 more!

Hooray! Although I don't come here as often as I want, I sure loved the couple of years when I was on here constantly. I am on the cusp of writing something new for the site too, just because. 

Thanks for starting this place, DiMolas!

PixlBit has opened me up to so many new and exciting things, and I am forever thankful for that. I'm looking forward to being able to write more often coming up very soon, so expect some more content from me besides Nerds Without Pants.

Thanks for creating a gaming site that's a comfortable, welcoming place to hang out. It was awfully nice to have this port to take refuge in when 1up when belly-up.

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD Review

It almost hurts to write that it’s been 13 years since Sega released Banana Blitz back on the Wii. At the time, I know I couldn’t have been more excited that we were about to see a Monkey Ball game that leveraged the motion capabilities of Nintendo’s hit system. However, when it finally released, I wasn’t thrilled with the results. Rather than leveraging the Wii remote in its horizontal orientation, like many other motion-centric games had, it forced you to point forward and contort your arm in awkward ways to tilt the stage. I quickly shelved the game and wrote it off as a failure. I suspect I wasn’t the only one, because after all these years Sega has released an HD remaster of the game leveraging more standard console controls using the analog stick. Unfortunately, the transition has introduced level design changes that bring things to a degree of difficulty that I’ve found to be insurmountable.
